Welcome to My Fundraising Page!
I have many reasons to walk on Oct. 6th.
I walk for my family and friends who have fought breast cancer with courage and won. I walk for my health and that of my daughter and the other precious women in my life. I walk for the many people who are supporting their loved ones as they battle this disease.
This year though, I walk in memory of my mum.
Tenacious and passionate, with a beautiful smile and selfless spirit, she defied the doctors’ prognosis of 4-6 months. Because of research made possible by generous donors, her treatment helped her to achieve partial remission and gave her (and us) the gift of an extra 2 years. While she squeezed everything she possibly could out of every day she was given, she gave back even more by making everyone she encountered feel loved, important and special, whether they were cleaning staff at the hospital or the homeless clients she was so committed to assisting. She endured pain with humour and grace and always, always had a thankful heart.
Mum, you are so fondly remembered but so deeply missed. I walk because, while I can hold you only in my heart, He holds you forever in His arms. ♥
Every day, 70 Canadians will hear the words “you have breast cancer.” While these Canadians are living longer, healthier lives after a breast cancer diagnosis, but there is still so much work to be done.
By participating in this year’s Canadian Cancer Society CIBC Run for the Cure, I’m joining a collective that is a force-for-life in the face of breast cancer. I’m running in of the incredible people in my life, and I need your help!
Please contribute what you can to help me achieve my fundraising goal. Every dollar makes a difference. Your donation will fund ground-breaking research to help save the lives of more Canadians and provide support programs for people affected by breast cancer.
Did you know that just $100 could fund two hours of life-saving research in a world class laboratory? Your contribution could lead to the next breakthrough!
Together, we can change the future of breast cancer.
Thanks in advance for your support!
